Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

Pinot Gris Clos Jebsal, Vendange Tardive, Vielles Vignes

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: France / Alsace
Grapes: 100% Pinot Gris

The 3.2-acre Clos Jebsal Vineyard is located on a gypsum fault line, rich in marl, at the bottom of the Zind-Humbrecht's Brand Grand Cru Vineyard. Here, all conditions required to produce noble rot are present. Zind-Humbrecht's dedication to terroir expression guides all winemaking practices, which include extended pressing cycles, abbreviated clarification cycles (to retain natural yeasts and proteins in the must), natural malolactic fermentation and extended aging on the lees. The wine is aged 24-36 months in 40-year-old French barrels.
